Live-in Care AssessmentBook your free care assessment
A live-in care assessment is the first step in matching you with your live-in carer. The wellbeing of our clients is at the heart of Abicare – We will endeavour to complete your FREE care assessment within 24 hours of your initial enquiry, and have the carer in post within 24-48 hours.
During your assessment, the Care Manager will discuss with you and your family members what you want from your live-in carer, and create a care plan that suits you and your needs.
Matching you with your perfect carer
We want to know as much as we can about you so that we can match you to your perfect carer – Providing information about yourself, such as the following, can be useful when finding a suitable carer:
- Your religion.
- Any languages you speak/language preference.
- Your ethnicity.
- Your cultural background.
- Dietary requirements.
- Food you like.
- Activities you like.
- Your routine.
- Any pets that may need looking after.
What we do to make sure you and your Live-in carer are suited?
A Live-in carer lives with you so we need to make sure the connection is right for both you and your carer. At Abicare all our carers are fully vetted, trained and experienced. We ask all our Live-in carers a variety of questions during their interview so that we know their likes, dislikes, preferences and any interests or hobbies they may have, and we expect our carers to be respectful, reliable, empathetic, patient, kind, caring and observant at all times.
A trial session can be put in place to have a Live-in carer visit to see how everyone gets along. Please don’t worry if you do not get along with your carer – we have an ever growing and wide database of Live-in carers from across England, Wales and overseas, and we can find you a replacement carer if you are not comfortable with the carer you have.
Frequently Asked Questions about Live-in care.
What is Live-in care?
Live-in care is where you have a fully trained carer living with you in your own home. Your Live-in carer will support you with your specific care needs to keep you safe, comfortable and living independently at home. Learn more about Live-in home care.
How much does Live-in care cost? Is it expensive?
The exact cost of Live-in care will be dependent on the level of care needed; this will be confirmed once we have visited your home to conduct a full care assessment. Live-in care can be more cost-effective than you realise.
What do I need to be able to have a Live-in carer?
A Live-in carer will need space of their own with a bed, access to bathroom facilities and a kitchen so food can be prepared by the carer for the client and themselves, if required. Learn more about a Live-in carer’s needs and how to get a Live-in carer.
